    Going to need a lock down defender or two to compliment Dame, Ant & Grant.
    I could see Chauncey badly wanting Sochan.

    Both are solid defenders too.

    Id be all for getting him if he was reasonable. Defense has to be a priority for this team.

    Thybulle couldn’t hit the water if he fell out of a boat in middle of the ocean

    you’ve got to make a bet on who is more likely to become a decent shooter… Dyson or Sochan.

    Thybulle ain’t it

    He could be a decent off the bench roll player/defender.

    The Grant trade should not affect who we pick. Its still now and always will be BPA

    Would love to find a way to get Sochan later in the lottery but not at the cost of a prospect like Sharpe. Perhaps Portland can take a contract to get a pick to get Sochan as well.

    Comparing apples to apples:

    Sochan shot 0.296% from 3 & a FT% of 0.589 in college
    Thybulle's lowest season in college he shot 0.305 (averaged 0.358) from 3 & had a FT% of 0.714


    Sochan ain't it either...

    Looks like Dyson wasn't any better in his G-League season. (0.255% & 0.737% respectively)

    dyson shot 40% from FT for his 29 games in the g league. that 74% was only a subset of games.

    “You’ve got to make a bet”

    Because you know what Thybulle is already.

    You’ve got to bet on Daniels / Sochan becoming more than that. And if they don’t, they’re both already better playmakers, dribblers and shot creators while being similarly as good defensively.

    Daniels is a very good passer. He could play point guard for the 2nd unit.

    You don't have to make that bet... It's a low probability outcome.

    Dyson is Evan Turner (v2). A high end version of Sochan is a Jae Crowder...

    I'd much rather pick up Thybulle who is already a 2x 2nd team all defense and trade down a bit and take a swing with either Eason or Dieng.

    I’ve suggested taking on Hayward’s remaining two years and getting #13, then trading up from there to get Sochan and then drafting whoever is BPA at #7. Mixed reviews, if not any good ones at all, lol.

    Or Dyson is Scottie Pippen 2.0. We don’t know what he will become.

    Dyson plays nothing like Evan Turner and the stats show it. Evan Turner was a high usage, inefficient off ball player. That’s nothing like Dyson.

    But that doesn’t matter. The point is that no matter what “low probability outcome”, you’ve got to take a swing and make a bet if you want to make it to contender status.

    Throw Sharpe in there as well. He isn’t “likely” to become a star but *if* he does that’s how we can become a contender. And becoming a star outside the top 3 picks is a low probability outcome no matter how you slice it. But the probability with Daniels, Sochan and Sharpe is much higher. That’s why they’re projected much higher in the draft. Eason doesn’t have the BBIQ, ball handling or playmaking ability to become a star. And his shot *arguably* translates worse than Sochan - who was a superior catch and shoot “shooter” from 3 than Eason. And Eason from one side of the court was like 20% from 3 because of his weird ass shot.

    Neither Eason or Dieng are likely to be available at 23. Mocks have Dieng from 9-13 for the most part and Eason around 15-17.

    Without the MIL, not sure what they’d want in return. You could trade Keon for draft compensation and trade that with 2nds for Thybulle with the Covington TPE if they’ll take that. But I don’t think I’d trade much more than that.
